Oculoplastic / Lacrimal Surgery

We provide a comprehensive Oculoplastic / Lacrimal surgery service with sub-specialist expertise, including:

  • Eyelid / Eyelash malposition correction
  • Eyelid skin tumour excision
  • Ptosis (droopy eyelids) repair
  • Nasolacrimal surgery
  • Enucleation / evisceration (removal of eye)

A close working relationship exists for skin tumour management between the Oculoplastic service and the local departments of Pathology, Dermatology and Plastic surgery, with whom there is discussion of appropriate cases at regular multi-disciplinary team meetings.

Some minor procedures are performed, where possible, at our community hospitals.

An orbital prosthetic service is also provided once a month at NDDH.
